This is an exciting time for fashion at the University of Westminster. Building on our outstanding international reputation for our BA Fashion Design, we have recently launched our ground-breaking two-year MA Menswear course, as well as the Westminster Menswear Archive, another global first for the University of Westminster.

The BA Fashion Design course at Westminster is famous for producing highly individual and creative fashion designers capable of working within all levels of the fashion industry. Graduates include Christopher Bailey, Roberta Einer, Claire Barrow, Ashley Williams, Stuart Vevers, and Liam Hodges. 

Our world-class internship programme allows students to work within the fashion industry for a year, usually abroad in Paris, New York or Milan. Current examples of where students are interning include Alexander McQueen, Burberry, Celine, Maison Margiela, Dior, Versace, Balmain, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Thom Browne, Marc Jacobs, and Alexander Wang.

We are seeking a passionate, creative individual with an excellent background in fashion theory to design and deliver the theoretical and contextual studies content within the BA (Hons) Fashion Design Course. The appointee will ensure that all students are fully engaged with the cultural and historical issues that are current in contemporary art & design and in particular in the discipline of fashion.  

You will also be expected to help shape and develop our fashion curriculum in relation to theoretical content and how it underpins the practice-based content of the course. You will use your knowledge of the fashion industry together with your related academic background to develop and lead creative and inspiring modules within the Fashion Design course. 

You will have sufficient breadth and/or depth of specialist knowledge and application of Fashion Design (including current international design practice) to work within established programmes and write authoritatively within the subject area.

The Fashion Industry Cluster is a growth area of the Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design and there are opportunities for the right candidate to develop the role and subject area further in line with the Cluster strategy.
